When I Have A Moment To Myself And How #Crochet Helps Me 

By | July 31, 2018

It will of no surprise to anyone who knows me, whether online or in “real life”, that, when I have a moment, I pick up a hook! Not a hook as in “aaaargh! Where’s Peter Pan?” but a crochet hook. It amazes me that I can do this for two reasons: One, because I’m left-handed. […]

Counting on Wellbeing – Tues 9th Jan 2018

By | January 9, 2018

I didn’t share a positive yesterday, in truth I couldn’t think of one, it was a “bit” of a stressful day. I’m not going into details apart from hormonal teens + autism + sensory issues + illness hanging around + waiting for a further (and I hope final) operation date all added up to one […]

By hook or by book – Fri 5th Jan 2018

By | January 5, 2018

My stress-filled days haven’t decreased, in fact today has seemed more “aaaaargh” than yesterday, it’s made me really quite grateful that the weekend has arrived – even though T and D have only been back at school for two days – and that we’ve found humour in unexpected places. This book, for example, has barely […]

Got the Virus #WOTW #R2BC 

By | February 9, 2017

It’s funny isn’t it, the little things we find that just keep us going, in times of stress, things that enhance our wellbeing. Mine used to be chocolate, still is tbh, but it has been replaced by something a bit better for me and that produces a nice end result (you can’t always say that […]

Crafts time – Sun 15th Jan 2017

By | January 15, 2017

After a really-quite-stressful week, this weekend was most definitely need for some individual downtime, in individual ways. T and D, having had T’s game called off in the morning, went to watch and aid with a men’s game in the afternoon.  T hadn’t been heading off to these regularly and he’s suddenly realising that it […]

Noses and WIPs – Sun 31st July 2016

By | July 31, 2016

Weirdly, both T and D have had nose issues today, T’s came in the form of a nosebleed and D’s as a tender “nose hole” as she calls a nostril.  It’s made for a day of cuddles and reassurance for D and reassurance for T (who doesn’t like cuddles and didn’t like the way his […]

My little bit of “Me”time – Tues 12th July 2016

By | July 12, 2016

I like Tuesdays during term time.  Do you know how I spend a couple of hours? I head to crochet group! I’ve been going since February and it’s something I’d always wanted to do, to learn to crochet.  My maternal grandma taught me how to knit but the thought of producing shapes from a hook […]
